Firefighters carried a woman out of a burning rowhouse in Dundalk yesterday morning during a blaze that charred a basement, injured two people and displaced five people in the 2900 block of Yorkway.

The woman, who was seriously injured, was rescued by firefighter Louis A. Dixon and specialist Kelly L. Weiss, who found the victim unconscious, said Capt. James Korn of the Baltimore County Fire Department.

She and a woman who sustained minor injuries were taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Korn said. Investigators have not determined the cause of the fire, officials said.

Brian Lord, 26, who lives across the street, said, "I see all this smoke rolling out of the house, and people were screaming and crying, `There is a lady in there!' ... You had to be a superhero to go in there," he said of the firefighters.

More than 50 firefighters brought the fire under control in about 30 minutes.
